the making of...

We had the privilege of having Haley come stay with us for the weekend. We gladly welcome her sweet self any time she needs a break from school. Grey adores Haley. He made her a very special Valentine and talked about her all week before she got here. We got to play in the snow and she helped build our snowman. 

Grey couldn't wait to make a snowman. We waited until late in the day so the snow would be a little more workable for this long awaited event.

Gathering up the bottom of the snowman.  Grey apparently needed a break to dive into some fresh snow. 

My very particular child likes to instruct everyone on the way things should be done. I believe he is saying here "Daddy, you have to pack the snow just like this."

Get it!! That's my husband.

Again, I'm sure Grey is instructing Haley on how to make the perfect snowman head. Thank goodness he let her help.


An immediate love for the snowman developed. 

We scrounged around the garage to find eyes, a nose, a mouth, and buttons. I won't tell you what we used.

We asked Grey what we should name our snowman to which he enthusiastically replied "Haley!" So here's to Haley the snowman. She's STILL standing outside, a little weathered, but still there. He goes to the window every morning to make sure Haley the snowman has not melted yet. 
What a fun memory!
